Rather than holding Christian-style baptisms or christenings, HUUC – like most Unitarian Universalist congregations – has child dedication ceremonies for infants and children.
Child dedication ceremonies are usually crafted by the parents, our minister, and Faith Formation Director working closely together. Many will include the following elements:
- A blessing for the new life of the child
- An expression of the parent or parents’ hopes for the child
- A promise by the congregation to support and nurture the child
If you are interested in having your child dedicated please contact our minister, Rev. Jill Cowie.
